Community engagement

We are passionate about the charities we support, as well as helping and providing for the local community. We work with a number of charities as a company and some of our team members also dedicate their time and energy through a variety of board appointments.

Within Aberdeen we have worked with larger charities such as CLAN and Sue Ryder but also cherish the smaller initiatives including Friends of Hazlehead and the Aberdeen Football Club Community Trust which benefits local communities.

As a Senior Partner Practice of St. James's Place Wealth Management, we are also a part of The St. James's Place Charitable Foundation which you can find more information on here.
